I use Amarok w/mysql opposed to the default sqlite. Some users will say
that Amarok is too bulky however, if you are a user that came from
Windows (as most probably are) and a user of iTunes (as in my case)
then Amarok is a reasonably good replacement.
Additionally, installing plugins (well, really called scripts) via the
Script Manager is a nice touch and using the the Funky Monkey theme
works for me.
There are lots of other nifty features that can be used w/Amarok (if
you choose). At least give it a try. If you don't like it, you can
always remove it.
